Despite the many efforts, environmental threats continued to be intensified. That doesn’t mean, however, that efforts are not being made.
Consumption is defined as the use of goods and services by a household. It is a component in the calculation of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Gross domestic product (GDP) is a standard measure of a country’s economic health and an indicator of its standard of living.
As electric utilities across North America continue to decarbonize by adding renewable energy sources to their grids, heat pumps have gained popularity as an effective, low-carbon heating solution. These systems use electricity to harness energy from the surrounding air and pump that energy indoors in the form of heat—much like an air conditioner in reverse. These systems can achieve efficiencies three to six times higher than conventional heating technologies.
Consumption can fall under anything that is creating waste, using energy, anything that really has an impact on the environment. Simple ways in which you can reduce your consumption can be: utilizing natural light, using less air conditioning or heat, investing in efficient appliances, or even taking shorter showers.
